    Example of losses that comes with this. I walk over to Wynn and lose 2k in 20 min trying to play high limit. Wake up call need to chill

    Donkey off a bit more playing. Done for the night. Going to rent a car I’d rather drive around then donk off more money.

    Prime example of what my trip has been like. So I lose back a few thousand. Go on tilt. Take Uber to airport to rent a car because I started to be upset at myself for giving 4K back. Go to Palace Station. 2 minutes win back 6k in baccarat side bets. Hit two hands of 150-1 back to back betting $25 each time.

    so sick every time I go down something brings me back up. I realize the odds are not in my favor but damm this is crazy what kinda rush this is

    Been there where I left way up but it could have been a decent amount better if I had taken some more breaks and done something completely different. Forcing yourself to take a break is key.

    I chuckled when I read about your Palace Station hits. A few times when I have won and then lost some at my homebase of Wynncore, I have headed over to Palace Station for a break, which is typically a combination of the Oyster Bar, Palace Station Bingo and VP. In the Fall of 2018, I had a winning trip. Won big at Wynn, then lost too much though still ahead, and then went to Palace Station to play some Bingo. I started playing a Lightning Link machine between Bingo sessions and that's when I got the LL Grand for $14k+.

    Moment of reflection. I definitely think I play for comps. The free meals and pick up charges drive me deep down. I know it’s dumb because you need to play so much that you could just easily buy it outright and save money. Every place I go to now I expect things to be free.
    I feel this form of lust is More of a disease than the actual gambling.
